The fate of the town’s old fire engine is up for discussion again


Frank Humphry

The future of the vintage fire engine, now owned by Crowborough Town Council, will once again be debated by Councillors next week.

“Frank Humphry” is named after the former Brigade Captain and was used in Crowborough until the mid-1950s.

The 1936 Dennis Light Six Pump Escape Fire Engine is not in working order and can be seen on display in the Motor Museum at Bentley Country Park in Halland.

When the last time the issues was discussed in October 2014 Councillor’s decided not to repair the engine and instead to use funds to transport it to town events on a trailer.

Information about the history of the engine is attached to the agenda for the Communication and Events meeting on Tuesday night and can be downloaded from the Council’s website:

All Council meetings are open to the public.  Residents wanting to speak should ask to do so at the start of the meeting.
